Edward G. Robinson and Agnes Moorehead in 'Our Vines Grow Tender Grapes'

Every week we like to look back at one of our most recognizable and celebrated alumni collaborations in history.

Today we have a collaboration with Agnes Moorehead and Edward G. Robinson in ‘Our Vines Grow Tender Grapes’. The movie premiered in 1945 was based on the 1940 novel by the same name by George Victor Martin. The story is about a Norwegian farmer lovingly raising his daughter in rural World War II-era Benson Junction, Wisconsin.

Fun fact: The trailer for this film includes a specially shot scene of Margaret O'Brien visiting alumnus Spencer Tracy. Tracy tells the child star he never wants to make a movie with her because she's too good for him.
